DENVER, CO - New Mexico State's Suteera Chanachai has been named the Western Athletic Conference Golfer of the Week for April 4-10.
Chanachai, a senior from Bangkok, Thailand (Demonstration Yamhumghang University), tied for third place at the Wyoming Cowgirl Classic held April 4-5 in Chandler, Ariz. She shot an even-par 216 (76-67-73) to finish three strokes behind the leaders. Her 67 in the second round was a career-best. Chanachai recorded 10 birdies in the tournament, the second most out of the 122 participants. Her score helped New Mexico State to a second place finish in the 23-team field. It is the first time in her career that Chanachai has won a WAC golfer of the week or month award.
